Puncture of the renal cavities.


Some percutaneous renal procedures may be contraindicated in the following situations (unless the

anticipated benefits outweigh the potential risks):

  • Uncontrolled haemostasis disorders.
  • Untreated urinary tract infection.
  • Malignant kidney or urinary tract tumor.

Do not use when, in the judgement of the physician, such a procedure would be contrary to the best interest of the patient.

Warnings and Precautions

  • The 22-gauge needle does not allow passage of conventional 0.035- or 0.038-inch guidewires
  • Do not withdraw the guidewire through the needle, as this can damage the guidewire. If the guidewire needs to be withdrawn, remove the guidewire and the needle as a unit
  • The risks and benefits of using Chiba needles should be considered in patients
